enough to get a compromise and to get it through both houses. that remains a big question this afternoon, and -- and it doesn't seem like we've got a clear answer on really where that goes yet. >> all right. let's get out of the beltway for a second here, kate, because we've got a poll today showing 62% of americans now favor raising the debt ceiling one way or another, either with or without debt reduction. got a block of senate republicans accepting higher revenues, ie taxes, as part of tax reduction. are these holdout house republicans becoming more isolated, and are they begin to feel the heat to compromise here? >> reporter: it's hard to say. we've talked to some very conservative republicans about that, and they stand very firmly in their belief that they do not think this a tax increase should be part of any debt deal because they don't think that it's good for the economy, and they say many of them were elected in 2010 really basically on this point, that they need to get the country's fiscal house in order and not continue spending, spending, spending, that they should be reduci

been a big hit in london "evita" here had bad reviews. the mood changed. funny enough, i think that's an intriguing one because in the late '70s america was a little bit in denial about talking about anything political. i mean, you remember the time, after vietnam, and i remember writing the early days of the "evita" run we hit the -- at the same time of the russian invasion of afghanistan, which i don't think anybody really completely understood what was going on. for give me for talking about afghanistan. i've gone off on a tangent. >> another time. >> suddenly people started talking about politics again. they said, maybe paralleled with what we were trying to say there was an interesting subject. >> how much have the critics gotten to you over the years? >> i don't really care very much if i don't think the critics really understand music. >> somebody that you respect, what is the most hurtful kind of thing they could say that would really get to you? >> i guess somebody who i did respect as a musician said that the score was humdrum or something, then i would be sad if i believe

. they do, however, believe she's no longer in central florida. when she left the jail, you saw the big crowds there. there were people yelling "killer" in that crowd as she got into the suv and left. there is a great deal of emotion still unresolved around this case. we saw a lot of people getting together who were doing something peaceful with those emotions over the weekend. they went to the site where caylee anthony's body was discovered and held a march from that site to the anthony home. all to remember the child whose death started all of this. it was a very solemn occasion. a lot of people walking in the street. at one point it was reported there were cars lined up on the road about a half mile long of people just parking on the roadside going into those woods where her body was discovered to go to that spot and remember that little girl. again, a great deal of emotion. people trying to process all of this on their own. but casey anthony at the moment is still staying out of the public eye even though she has a lot of legal entanglements she will still have to address in the mon

. these are big proximate but we're a big country and we'll solve it. >> reporter: now, the main issue he's going to have to teal with is why he decided to hire andy colson who was later arrested as part of the investigation into the phone hacking. this is something that was brought up yesterday in the hearings and it turns out that his chief of staff actually warned the british police not to brief the prime minister on these phone hacking issues. lawmakers today are clearly going to try to get to the bottom of this as you can imagine from the opposition labor party. >> david cameron said he didn't know about this either. thanks so much. >> it's going to be hard to top the intensity of what happened yesterday. the theater of yesterday's phone hacking hearings. two hours after telling parliament it was the most hufble day of his life, rupert murdoch took a pie in the face. a 26-year-old man armed with a pie full of shaving cream nails rupert murdoch from behind saying you greedy billionaire and it didn't take long for murdoch's wife there, leapt to her husband's defense. she tried to clock the guy
a lot to talk about. big news over the budget and deficit reduction. president obama is rejecting calls for a short-term hike. he made a rare appearance in the press room. he's challenging them to seize the moment and cut a deal. >> i don't think the american people here sent us here to avoid tough problems. it's, in fact, what drives them nuts about washington. when both parties simply take the path of least resistance. i don't want to do that here. i believe right now, we have a unique opportunity to do something big. to tackle our deficit in a way that forces our government to live within our means. still allows us to invest in that future. >> all right. sounds good. sounds hopeful, it does. maybe something will get done, like everyone is going to come in. less than an hour after the president's invitation, john boehner missed the discussions saying a deal won't pass in the house, if it includes tax increases. he said, i'm happy to discuss the issues at the white house, but the discussions are fruitless until the president recognizes economic and legislative reality. >> that doesn't
on a big deficit reduction plan that includes massive spending cuts, tax reform and entitlement reform, tax increases. so you can see here the clock is ticking and the end game here still very unclear. >> this thing just keeps on developing and you hear hopefulness and then schedules. you will keep us posted when you hear there's actually some kind of timeline we have to figure out whether we are going to have money to pay our bills on august 3rd or not. >> after two days of explosive hearings in the uk phone hacking scandal, relatives of 9/11 victims in the u.s. are now saying they will be meeting with attorney general eric holder soon. they asked for the meeting one-on-one since the fbi started investigating allegations that "news of the world" hacked the phones of survivors, victims and their families. the meeting has yet yet been set. >>> rupert murdoch is back in the united states. he and his wife returned to their new york home yesterday. there is a lot on rupert murdoch's plate. news corp. is facing an fbi investigation and at least two u.s. based lawsuits filed by shareholders. also

quickly. that's still four or five years away and maybe deep space beyond. that's where the big questions are, whether we're going to follow through on that promise. >> you just described to us earlier how this is a record breaking crowd there at the kennedy space center. tell us what happened when the shuttle landed. >> for the first time in my coverage of the space shuttle landings, there was a huge round of applause as it landed. a lot of excitement. and there certainly is the sense of wow, this is really it. this is the very final time we're going to see this down. it's a little bit of a drag that it was predawn. it's really hard to see. usually see the shuttle approaching the runway because the lighting change on the runway lights being obscured by the shuttle coming in but then come flying behind us on the runway with a big parachute out dragging it down to a slower speed but certainly there was a lot of pride, i think, here watching this end of an era and, of course, you know, we had the big private commercial taxi service you mentioned, tom, in october, i believe, the big falcon l
is it shows that the united states system is not set up to do big things. when a crisis like this comes up they cannot do a deal that would show stability to the world. >> ronald reagan and tip o'neal made big deals. in the 1990s, bill clinton and the republican congress made big deals. and mika, it's not over yet, but it has gotten to the point already that this is damaging the reputation of the united states the longer it goes, and i think we're talking about it damaging our reputation more every day that the crisis goes on. >> i think both sides would agree with that. after a weekend of meetings resulting in yet another impasse, president obama is canceling two fundraisers today to continue negotiations. senate majority leader harry reid said the talks broke down last night because of the republicans insistence on a short-term deal, and their plan would cut $2.7 trillion over the next ten years. officials say it raises the debt ceiling but no tax increases. and he salaid out his latest solution. >> there will be a two-stage possible. it's not physically possible to do this in one step.
the cliff thelma and louise style but 43% of independents say what's the big deal? >> what's the pugh research? they only talk to 764 people. >> they did it all yesterday afternoon. >> by the way, we have a panel of independent voters coming up to see how they're feeling about the debt ceiling debate because obviously, they are the coveted group. >> that panel, 765. >> all right. >> a little bit bigger. >> we go to a panel of one. steve winn is the ceo of winn resorts. they have those casinos and stuff like that in vegas. he was on a conference call with investors and investment banks yesterday and he really let the president of the united states have it. we've got some quotes from the conference call. he says, here you go. "i'm saying it bluntly, that this administration is the greatest wet blanket to business and progress and job creation in my lifetime. and i can prove it and i can spend the next three hours giving you examples of all of us in this marketplace that are frightened to death about all the new regulations, our health care costs escalate, regulations coming from left
of times on the saturday and sunday morning sessions when there is something big going on. you want the principals to get in the room and figure out how they will work this out. you want reid or his representative or mcconnell or his representatives. somebody from the white house to get into a room and talk this thing over and figure out what they will do in the next 48 hours going forward. that is the most important thing. our people will comb the capitol to figure out what the meetings are going on. >> good luck with that. we know about the two proposals by reid and boehner. folks on capitol hill said they are not too far apart. >> no. they are not too far apart. there is tricky stuff in there. one of the things that makes reid different from boehner is reid's plan considers cost savings as the winding down of the iraq and afghanistan wars. that is $1 trillion of difference. the boehner plan doesn't consider the winding down of the afghanistan and iraq wars. another thing that is in there that is very different from the democrat and republican ideas is boehner has this balanced bu
states and these other 18 countries have aaa ratings. the u.s. is the big safe haven in the world. so why do these credit agencies matter? who listens to them? investors around the world listen to them. they look at the credit rating agencies and the credit rating of companies and countries to decide where they'll invest the money. for governments, they have a lot of power over the interest rates on the bonds that they can sell to investors. the safest bets pay the lowest interest. that and 's what you want if yoa government trying to raise money. agencies are either paid by the borrower or from subscribers who need the information. standard & poor's tells cnn money that the sovereign u.s. rating is unsolicited, that the u.s. government doesn't pay anything for that rating. and that it is an unbiased ass isment of what's p happhappenin the u.s. >>> here's a rundown some of the stories we're covering. wall street employees are canceling vacations with the debt ceiling deadline just six days away. is that a bad omen for your 401(k)? and i talked to a man who developed a rare tumor after wor
default. august 2 is the big day and president obama is urging compromise in congress. he spoke to the nation last night and he criticized the republicans. >> a significant number of republicans in congress are insisting on a different approach, a cuts only approach, an approach that doesn't ask the wealthiest americans or biggest corporations to contribute anything at all. >> but gop leaders say the president is the one who is refusing to budge. >> the president wanted a plank check six months ago. and he wants a blank check today. this is just not going to happen. >> republicans are pushing to raise the debt limit enough to last for the rest of the year and then a joint committee would tackle a second increase and more spending cuts but mr. obama says he will veto any plans to raise the debt ceiling if it comes in two waves. he supports a plan by majority leader harry reid to raise the limit to 2012. >>> breaking news out of morocco. a state news agency says a c- 130 plane has crashed in a mountainous area there. there are reports that 26 people have been killed, four injured.
's casey anthony released shortly after midnight. last night -- night before last. the big question now is where did she go? >> right, where is she? >> where did she go? we know that after the courthouse right there, they went in a series of cars over to a parking garage where her attorney was. next thing you know, we don't know. >> possibly the old switch-a-roo there. >> she's facing the possibility of some lawsuits so she can't completely disappear so we may see her popping up again. right now, we don't know where she is and that's incredible really when you think about the amount of attention that this has gotten and that everyone knows what she looks like. >> it was amazing. had to go through some precautions. for a woman without a budget, it's amazing the amount of money we were spending on her, her safetyher future for now anyway or maybe somebody is keeping a tab because she probably will be coming into some money soon. they called up her parents and said do us a favor, show up at the hotel, excuse me, at the prison, and go -- and be a good decoy for the press who are going t
to that. what i was thinking about today, in one sense, no. it doesn't matter which plan. a big investor think both plans are really band-aid plans and none of them deal significantly with what i like to call the big three. medicare, medicaid and social security. in the short material, either deal will probably be enough. really interesting this afternoon, when i was talking to an investor who had met with the ratings agency at standard & poors talking about the downgrade. could it raise interest rates the same way a potential default could. they said the boehner plan probably wouldn't hit the hurried tol prevent a downgrade. even if that was reached, you could still get a downgrade. it is unsure whether that would happen. the reid plan, even though a lot of the parts of that are seen by many as gimmicks, probably would pass that hurdle and you wouldn't get that immediate downgrade. that's an interesting distinction. >> stand by for a moment. i want to bring back kate and jessica. there is a harry reid plan and a john boehner plan. given the stakes involved, why not have these two gentle
this theater for however long it's been now really pumps it up. i never thought there was going to be a big deficit or debt reduction deal between the two parties because it's not in the interest of either party. i think the republicans were tactically terrible because they allowed obama to sort of portray himself or present himself as the one who is above the fray and who is interested in making the most cuts to the budget and to the debt going forward. and then making it appear, not appear but it's true, the republicans are walking away from a real deal to cut spending in this country. also, it gave obama and the democrats a chance to spotlight the republicans position on taxes. there's no way to get a handle on budget deficits over the long term debt without raising somebody's taxes. >> if this is raising the white flag, if this is going against the base, what is the difference between this and cutting a deal on tax loopholes and other things that would not impact their message overall. what makes this better? >> this is horrible. >> it's stupid. >> it's a nightmare. it's cynical. the se
for joining us. if we don't get a deal out of washington before the big bad debt ceiling deadline, one of the guys you can blame or thank, depending on how you see it, is congressman joe walsh, a republican from illinois. he's one of those freshmen who rode the tea party wave into washington last fall. we mentioned them a moment ago. he spoke out against a compromise at a tea party rally in washington earlier today. listen. >> i'm a freshman. maybe i'm naive. but i don't think unless we force -- unless we force republicans and democrats to balance their books every year, they won't. the only way we can do that is to force them. the only way we can force them is to put a balanced budget amendment in the constitution. we have to do that. we can't yield. >> and congressman walsh joins me now live from capitol hill. congressman, welcome back to the show here. listen, you know what i'm hearing more than anything around d.c., people are saying about you and some of the other people who are really holding the hard line here, don't these guys know how to take a win? because the feeling is that
smart to get in, you were smart. >> it has become a big business the last few years with the cost of coffee. cheers to your ice water there. >>> we want to update you, first, with the latest from washington on those debt talks. there are only five days left for congress to pass a budget cutting plan that will raise the government borrowing limit and avoid a possible default. this morning, the house is set to take a very important vote and much of america from main street to wall street will be watching. cbs news congressional correspondent nancy cordes is on capitol hill this morning. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, erica. that's right. the vote today is on speaker boehner's bill to raise the debt ceiling and it's important because it's one of the two bills out there that could possibly get us out of this mess. but at this hour, it's still very uncertain whether speaker boehner has the republican votes he needs to pass it. and so he became boehner the enforcer yesterday, holding several meetings with house republicans, tea party republicans, freshmen republi
us the big picture. >> reporter: what's happening now is democrats are waiting. they're just waiting to see what happens with the republican's bill before making their own move in the senate. the big picture here is neither the republican's bill in the house nor the democrats' bill in the senate seems to have the votes to get through both houses of congress. so we're back at stalemate. >> and so it's wednesday and there's no deal. the ted line is tuesday of next week. if congress can't get it done by then, you could start to see higher interest rates, a declining dollar and other problems. the white house website has put up a chart that breaks down the u.s. debt by administration over the last ten years. i was just looking at it. more than $3.5 trillion because of changes to the economy, not policy changes, but less tax income and things like that. the two wars, tax cuts, t.a.r.p., the so-called bank bailout, the stimulus is all listed there. worth checking out if you have some time. don't worry, it's safe for work. we do love our charts. >>> a federal granld jury in alabama indicted
